Article Contributed by South by Southwest | Published on Monday, March 8, 2021

The South by Southwest® Music Festival (SXSW®) presents the full list of 280 Showcasing Artists invited to perform online at the 35th annual event. The festival will be a totally distinctive experience with artist showcases coming from unique and iconic venues around the globe. This essential industry event occurs March 16 - 20, 2021.

The SXSW Music Festival programmers and presenters are creating an exceptional online musical experience. New additions to the list of showcases and presenters of this year’s performances include CaoTai Music / Crater Monde / China Gathering, Digital Love, Mint Talent Group, NPR Tiny Desk Meets SXSW, Pagal Haina, Third Culture and Warner Records. A full list of presenters can be found here

Showcases take place Tuesday - Friday from 12:30 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. CT and on Saturday from 11:00 a.m. - 9:30 p.m. CT. Showcases vary from 30 minutes to over an hour in length with 4-6 artists performing, but of course, there are exceptions with presenters using the format they feel is the most compelling. Showcases must be viewed when they air — as if one is there. For passholders in the eastern hemisphere (or early risers in the western), the schedule repeats over the next 12 hour cycle.

Listen to the artists who will be performing at SXSW 2021 by subscribing to the official SXSW channels and playlists on  Apple Music, Spotify, YouTube, and Qobuz.

SXSW worked with world-renowned artists and the social XR events studio VRrOOm to design and produce the festival's virtual edition, which will be hosted on VRChat.

In addition to the Music Festival Showcases, passholders also have access to the full range of content available during SXSW Online including Conference Keynotes, Featured Speakers, Mentor Sessions, Networking Meet Ups, Film Festival Screenings, Comedy Festival Showcases, Online Exhibitions and Professional Development.
